The Miller Analogies Test (MAT)
Tests your aptitude to establish relationships between English language, vocabulary and understanding of fine arts, history, philosophy literature, science and mathematics. Out of the 120 questions, there are 20 questions known as "experimental items". These 20 questions do not count towards your score. You will not know which are these experimental questions therefore, it becomes all the more necessary to focus on the entire test.
The Miller Analogy Test is composed of analogies. An analogy can be defined as a word coined to define the relationship between two words as the other two compared are related to each other.
